BETTING TRENDS

Seattle Mariners are 10-1 SU in their last 11 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Texas' last 6 games.

Texas Rangers are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Texas' last 7 games at home.

Prediction

The Mariners are on a hot streak and are climbing spots in the standings. They're also 4-2 against the Rangers this season and have won 5 of their last 6 games on the road. Marcos Gonzales has allowed no more than 2 runs per game in his last 6 starts and has decent numbers against the Rangers in his career. The Rangers have won their last 2 series and are ranked in the top 10 in offense with 4.5 runs per game. Martin Perez will take the mound and he has struggled lately allowing 13 runs in his last 18.2 innings pitched, the Rangers haven't lost in his last 4 starts tho. The Mariners are on fire right now and if Perez continue to struggle they'll pound him tonight so there's good value in the Mariners money line.

PICK: Mariners ML (+105)
